The TWU/IAM Association has decided to change the procedure for how we vote.

The Leadership of the TWU/IAM Association has decided to change the procedure for how we vote. The voting for the ratification of the tentative Joint Bargaining Agreement with American Airlines, will be done electronically. This one time deal was proposed with the safety of our membership in mind. Eliminating in person, paper ballots is our way of preventing the spread of or infecting others with the Coronavirus during our voting period.
BALLOTPOINT will be the system used for the electronic voting process. This proven system is also used by the National Mediation Board for electronic elections. All eligible voters should receive instructions along with a Personal Identification Number (PIN) through the mail. These will be mailed to the address American Airlines has on file for you. In addition to the mailed version, an email will also be sent to your A.A email account. The email will contain a link to the BALLOTPOINT portal. 
Voting will be conducted beginning at 6 am Wednesday 3/25/2020 and will conclude at 8pm Thursday 3/26/2020. Rest assured this method is private and secure. Immediately following poll closing, Association leadership will be notified of the results. Leadership will then be responsible for releasing results to our membership. 
Please forward any quest or concerns to your local representatives.
